Mizuno Wave Rider 16 Sneak Peek

Posted on July 30, 2012 in Running Shoes

Last December, Mizuno totally redesigned the fit and feel of the Rider 15, creating a firm, responsive platform and better upper fit. So are we in for another complete overhaul of the Rider in the latest update? Nope. The mid/outsole is a complete carryover from version 15, so the big story is the new upper. […]

Asics Gel Kayano 19 Sneak Peek

Posted on July 27, 2012 in First Look Running Shoes

The Kayano has long been a go-to shoe for overpronators seeking maximum support in a well-cushioned package. Now in its 19th iteration (2013 marks 20 years for the shoe), this update introduces a two layer midsole construction for a softer feel as well as seamless overlays for improved comfort. We are expecting a reduction in […]

Our Tweet Continuing to be a comfort-focused, premium trainer, the Brooks Glycerin 10 receives only minor updates this time around. (View Men’s Glycerin 10 and Women’s Glycerin 10) Big Updates Fresh Design: The Glycerin 10 has an all-new look from heel to toe, though the technologies used and key metrics such as stack heights are […]


Merrell Mix Master 2 – Our Take

Posted on July 25, 2012 in Running Shoes

Our Tweet Go fast or faster, go trail or asphalt in the Merrell Mix Master 2 (Men’s) and Merrell Mix Master Glide (Women’s), a nimble shoe that’s trail tough and cushioned enough to handle the roads on the way to the trailhead. Big Features Low Drop: The 12mm forefoot and 16mm heel results in a […]


Mizuno Wave Ekiden Sneak Peek

Posted on July 23, 2012 in First Look Running Shoes

The ekiden is a traditional Japanese road racing relay format in which teams of runners take turns carrying a symbolic sash, or tasuki, across distances of up to 200k or more. First run in 1917 between the cities of Kyoto and Tokyo to commemorate the anniversary of the relocation of the nation’s capital, the ekiden […]


The North Face Spring ’13 Sneak Peek

Posted on July 19, 2012 in Running Shoes

As we mentioned in our sneak-sneak peek last month, The North Face is launching three new models in February 2013: the Hyper-Track Guide, Ultra Guide and Double-Track Guide. We’re impressed with the thoughtful engineering of these models and expect them to slot in nicely with other stripped-down trail and road/trail models that are increasingly popular. […]


It’s Your Turn to Run the World

Posted on July 18, 2012 in Running Apparel

Wait…you’re still rockin’ the stars and stripes on your runs? Independence Day was SO two weeks ago (literally). Now’s the time of year when even the die-hardiest patriot comes down with a bad case of Olympic Fever. And the only prescription: more apparel. That’s right, Running Warehouse has you covered, or at least your torso […]


Montrail FluidFlex Sneak Peek

Posted on July 17, 2012 in First Look Running Shoes

Wouldn’t it be nice to tie on a trail shoe that gives you a connected feel for the ground but also offers a good amount of protection from trail hazards and a bit of cushioning to keep you comfortable mile after mile? That’s the exact design spec for the new Montrail FluidFlex. A key feature […]


Saucony Ride 5 – Our Take

Posted on July 13, 2012 in Running Shoes

Our Tweet The Saucony Ride 5 may look like a traditional trainer, but its design conceals a number of updates that make for a more responsive, lighter weight shoe. (View Men’s Ride 5 and Women’s Ride 5) Big Updates Lighter Weight: The Ride 5 drops an ounce compared to the previous model, thanks to the […]


Mizuno Zero Drop – Wave Evo Levitas and Evo Cursoris

Posted on July 12, 2012 in First Look Running Shoes

Many of the big running shoe brands have a more “minimal” shoe line – think Nike Free, New Balance Minimus and Adidas Adipure. So does that mean Mizuno is late to the game with the new Evo collection you see here, coming January 2013? We don’t think so at all. Mizuno spent their product development […]
